Personally, I am expecting shortages. A small indie company having the resources to meet demands... This will be something I'll need to see before I can believe. Nintendo can't even meet it but they probably do that purposely.

I never understood buying games digitally online from a 3rd party site when you can buy them on the online shop on the console. Unless they have a sale on... there is really no point at all and would only benefit is special circumstances.

@Nico07

Where do you live where Amazon does not charge you tax? The only time I get away without tax is if I manage to get it off continent.

It is probably more of the problem that people came in expecting a bad game and treated it as such so they never gave it much effort. Personally, I don't care for the game and if I did get it, it would be when the price goes down.

@JaxonH The thing is, you're the first to label that. It is probably because I talk both positive and negative (in fact, there is evidence in many of the topics on the first page) about it though as of late, a little more negative because there hasn't been much positive, especially in NA. However, many have said what I have said about you. And when I do talk about the negative, there is usually many that agree and it is only you, and sometimes two others that ever attempt and prove me wrong (which often times, you don't and dodge the actual issue).

The video temps me though I am not a huge handheld gamer really as usually when I am able to play games, I am home and I prefer the console. However, I will pick up my 3DS from time to time for good games.

"The noticeable difference between this site and PushSquare, is you don't have the flurry of insanely out of control comments on that site like you do here."

Hate to say it, but PushSquare has barely any comments. Two articles on the front page have more than 25, one being 28,the other 49. The amount of people there vs here is not even close to comparable and you can't really judge it due to the amount of people. If you go to any Sony or Xbox forum, board or whatever with a comparable user base as here, you'll see the same kinds of comments that are "out of control" there that happen here. I'd also like to note that you, yourself help fuel the "out of control" comments here with your attempt at damage control at anything controversial.

Now that you had your reality check(s), I'm heading to bed.

Yeah, I know what you mean. I keep hoping for directs but the fact that everything has been done by Twitter, it makes me wonder if they are done. Maybe once they get a confirmed new president and stuff running back to a more norm, maybe they'll start up again. I hope they do.

@faint maybe, but it won't really save them, it will force them to go mobile especially if no one buys their consoles. As a company, they will be saved, they will just do what they always did and move on to a new kind of product. But their consoles... they will be gone.

@DarkCoolEdge

Yeah, try finding one that will ship here and when you do, try finding one that doesn't inflate the price. That is something that is nearly impossible. I have only found one that won't but I will not order from them because the shipping cost is more than the Amiibo. You obviously never read my stuff before.

@Ryu_Niiyama
It's not damned if they do, damned if they don't, it is just damned if they don't. Really, Nintendo has been doing a lot of "damned if you don't." Nintendo has been very out of touch this generation from... well... pretty much everything. Think of the Wii, you didn't see a lot of complaints about games and support from that. Sure, there would be some when a major 3rd party walked away but compared to the Wii vs Wii U, there is way more "don't" than "do" and when there is do, I don't see a lot of complains unless the do is specifically one region. That's why there is so much negativity towards Nintendo this generation and people defending the bad is just going to make it worse. As for game droughts... lol, that's a joke right? Even with mediocre games, they'd be better than what the Wii U's entire life span was. There is really nothing to compare here because the Wii U has always been with long droughts. When did the whining stop? When Nintendo lied to us telling us the droughts were over after finally getting some games again in the fall. When did the complaining start again? When the droughts happened again the following year and people saw that Nintendo lied.

@faint To play co-op with shovel knight? Sure, to play Amiibo party, yes and I did buy all the super Mario Amiibo for that. For splatoon, yes, when I get the game eventually. Now, even if I didn't, does that change that others may want to and may not get it? No.

ikki5 commented on Shovel Knight amiibo Confirms "Evolving" Relat...:

@faint Well, when I see it, I'll believe it. For now, they are sold out in the pre-orders in the places that are offering them. Of course, that could also be due to not a low of information but I'm not holding my breath for anything.

In the end, the practice is still bad and people should not be supporting it even if Yacht Club does provide enough because we already know that Nintendo doesn't.

@faint

I don't think you are because you are now just dodging the issue now with brining up stuff that they added for free after the backers paid for it. This is something completely different. We are talking about content that will be lost forever for some and free content doesn't just balance that out even more so when I talked about how Nintendo is doing this as well. Maybe, Yacht Club will be smart and produce more... but them being a small indie developer without a blockbuster of resources... I can just imaging how well they'd be able to manufacture enough to meet the demands. Honestly, I don't see them doing any better or even on par with Nintendo unless they get help from somewhere.

ikki5 commented on Shovel Knight amiibo Confirms "Evolving" Relat...:

@faint Um.. how and when is content locked by a toy that you need to buy free? Even more so when if those toys don't come to your region, or they are sold out forever really free? You'll never be able to get the content even if you do want it. You know how it is with Amiibo. This Amiibo won't be a mainstream 3rd party one either like Pac-Man or Megaman. The shortages are going to be terrible, probably worse than the ones that are already short. This is the crap you guys are supporting.

@faint Nintendo allowed them to do it. Plus, Nintendo already does this. So therefore, Nintendo is still in the wrong and people are defending that wrong. My "rage" is not blind rage. What is blind is you guys failing to see the issue here and ignoring it when told about it. My opinion here is based and supported on the pure facts here which I have laid out and how people are going to be left out, unlike the other opinions defending this practice which are selfish and ignorant.

@Syrek

Lol, you love getting screwed... don't you? You love having stuff potentially locked from you to never be able to experience the content. Look, Amiibo have become a plague. They started off great, it didn't really matter if you got them or not because, it was just small little quirks that didn't make any difference to your game. Well, now they do, we have (at least) three games now which are going to have actual gamemode content locked away from you, potentially forever. Not just some little skin or whatever, an actual gamemode, some locked on the disc right from day one (well, two out of the three). It is not me you should pity, it is you and your selfish, blinded attitude. I'm sorry but I take a look at the whole picture. I don't blindly follow a company like it is some sort of cult.

"Negative, negative, negative"? Sure, why? Because the positives are way out numbered now. It is like every positive, there are 2-3 negatives to follow. Nintendo has become garbage this generation which is sad because I've been in love with them for 20+ years. Yeah, 20+ years which is probably why I stuck with them so long. This gen has been garbage and it is too the point where I will be probably jumping ship from Nintendo like the majority already have, probably next gen and I'll leave you guys to getting screwed. I'd rather be paying for the DLC and actually be able to get it then have it most likely locked away forever.

I am not the one spewing garbage, it is those defending terrible, hobby breaking practices. But hey, you guys are apologists. Nintendo can't do no wrong in your eyes and you'd defend them if they murdered your child.

@Splatburst
Most Europeans on Amazon will not ship to NA. sure, it may work but the site will also try and default you to it and when you try to go against it, often times the stuff won't ship to you, at least not Canada. So those prices what I listed are accurate.

@FLUX_CAPACITOR
You missed the point too. I used those games for examples and you know what? You are actually wrong here because Mario Part 10 uses Amiibo to unlock a gamemode. That is a game that is* entirely focused on multiplayer* so what is now stopping them if they will lock modes on disc that are 100% geared for multiplayer? Obviously nothing. It isn't about whether or not this would have had MP if the Amiibo didn't exist or not, it is the fact that people will be locked away from an actual gamemode and may never be able to unlock it or they may end up paying and atrocious price. Seriously, you Nintendo Defender, Apologists are really annoying.

Your point about how often will someone be right there? That can apply for any multiplayer game. Seriously, you guys are pathetic. You go and defend something being locked away forever for some but then bash other companies for stuff that is better than this. I'd take day one DLC over this, I'd take them removing the content to charge you for it later then to never be offered this unless you fight the masses and hope for the best.

It is people like you drones that make gaming go to hell because you support terrible practices with weak, selfish arguments.

Try finding:

Ike $30 amazon
Rosalina $40 amazon
Lucina $35 Amazon
Marth $37 Amazon
Villager
Wii Fit Trainer
Palutina
Metaknight
Robin $42 Amazon

and a bunch others. Even with the restocks, there are none on the shelves and most stores, don't even get time to put them on the shelves before they are sold. Yes, they've been re-stocking them but they are still far behind to even come close to meeting the demands.

"It shouldn't matter if you get an entire game mode for amiibo- that's a GOOD thing! "

No it isn't, it will never be a good thing because like I said which for some reason you keep ignoring is that some people will never be able to experience that gamemode due to shortages or just not being offered in their region. This will be something locked away from millions of people, even people who would want to play the gamemode. And no, if they start adding in gamemodes, I am not then getting the full extent to the game. I was annoyed enough with DLC often times because of the extra costs it brought but this... this is far worse as this is basically DLC that is only offered to those with a lot money and those who can shove the most through a line. If they had to do this, make it available to buy without the Amiibo, preferably at a reduced cost but... knowing Nintendo, it won't happen so whatever, at least make it available to all.

It just sickens me how you keep looking at this as rewarding those who buy Amiibo when there are thousands of people trying to buy other Amiibo but can't and because they can't, they get punished. You call me entitled or Jealous? Sorry, I'm not, but you, you're greedy, selfish and ignorant. You are lacking the understanding that some people try to buy Amiibo and won't go and spend $50-$80 on some Amiibo for some costume or gamemode such as myself. You support a practice that could tear the multiplayer gaming and other game modes apart and for what? A toy? just sad.

@JaxonH

Sigh...
This isn't about entitlement. This is more about several things. Things such as unlocking content that usually comes standard now. Sure, Shovel Knight is a retro game and retro games usually didn't have this kind of multiplayer. But still, if this practice is accepted, how do you think it will affect games in the future?

Secondly, we are looking at Amiibo move now into unlocking entire gamemodes. Splatoon sort of did this with unlocking the missions and now we have Shovel Knight unlocking co-op mode. Amiibo started off as these figures that would unlock small quirks in games, this was one of the biggest arguments people made about Amiibo when people claimed it was basically on-disc DLC locked behind Amiibo and that people claimed it was just something small that you wouldn't give you less content really from the game. This, it does, you lose the ability to play with a friend.

Lastly, these Amiibo will not be available to everyone. And those where they will be available, they may never be able to unlock the content anyway whether they wanted to or not simply because of how the Amiibo stock issues work. Some people will be stuck paying more than the ~$15 and considering how this is going to be an Indie Amiibo, you cannot seriously think it will have any better numbers manufacture, if better at all compared to the other first party Amiibo.

Seriously, this entitled argument is really becoming weak against blinded consumers.

@JaxonH

I am talking about Multiplayer. Imagine if Smash or Mario kart did this?

"In order to play with your friends, you need to buy "X" Amiibo!"

Yeah, garbage. Sure it wasn't in the game during release but still, it is basically telling you that you cannot play the game with your friend unless you spend more money. I'd much rather something stay single player than having to pay more later for multiplayer. Even more so when that paying more is going to be something that will not be available for everyone. You know how it is with Amiibo, use your head and with it being an Indie Amiibo... I can see it being far worse. It is even possible for someone to be willing to buy it for the co-op and then never be able to experience it.

It makes me sick to see you and other people support this garbage practice.

Amiibo used to be about unlocking skins and small quirks in games, now they are starting to unlock entire gamemodes. This is all going to hell and a blind man should be able to see this.
